Because we all share his small planet Earth, we have to live in harmony and peace with each other and nature. That is not just a dream, but a necessity.

Dalai Lama

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

The first one reaches too far beyond my simplistic mind, but it DOES make me want to strive to be a better person....

The second one I can grasp totally---but then, to practice the first quote, one has to embrace the second quote.
"Oh, dear!", said Winnie-The-Pooh.

Regarding the second quote: a mantra my yoga teacher has used says "Always try to practice loving kindness toward others and yourself."

Perhaps if one does that, the first quote will happen? A simplistic solution, but one has to start somewhere!

LOL, I'm all worked up about all the spam here at the GP, and here you are posting quotes of reasoning. Good timing. I'll try to practice what the Dalai Lama said. Can't promise I won't do another protest in huge black fonts.
